Fonseca and Roma await Shakhtar

Roma seem to have chosen Paulo Fonseca as their new Coach after a meeting with his representatives, but it depends on Shakhtar Donetsk.

According to several sources, including Sky Sport Italia and La Gazzetta dello Sport, today’s encounter in Madrid went well and they worked out the basics of a three-year contract worth €2.5m per season.

However, it all depends on whether Shakhtar Donetsk are prepared to release their tactician for free or demand the €5m release clause in his contract.

If the Ukrainians try to block the move, then Roberto De Zerbi of Sassuolo is the main alternative.

It seems as if Fonseca is eager to join Roma and his good rapport with Shakhtar should ensure a smooth transition after three years together.
